A GOOD, Productive Day!


Yesterday was one of my favorite kinds of days. It was warm and summery, which was nice and in spite of my allergies (time to start taking the medication for them!) I was ENERGETIC. I accomplished a ton and wish five of seven days were like this for me! Here is some of what I accomplished yesterday:


Washed all the laundry, hung it all out on the line. The breezy day pressed a lot of the items perfectly.
Mowed the lawn (dandelions).
Hand-washed the Mustang, the Suburban, and the Buick! (Note: Magic Eraser worked really well to get the dried-on dead bugs off the grille!)
Washed some particularly disturbing bird poop messes off the house, again, with Magic Eraser (on vinyl siding).

Hung my new buntings on the porch for the memorial day weekend.
Watered all the flowers.
Fell into bed, exhausted, but happy and tired enough to sleep VERY WELL.

It felt so good to shed the winter mindset and be outside for most of the day! Good, honest, hard work can cure just about anything!

Sounds like my yesterday! After a week with a black cloud hanging round, it was a delight to just work myself to exhaustion!

I know what you mean! The warm, sunny days have been inspiring! Unfortunately, I waited till today (gloomy, gray and much cooler) to get my sheets washed. So they are on the line, but could be there all day before they are dry!

Hi Joni,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment to let me know of your visit. I love reading your blog as well. For as long as I can remember I have had the dream to own an old farm house. I love my current home but the dream is still there. Your home is wonderful and so charming. I enjoyed my visit to your blog and I will be sure to return again. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Ohhh, I am so envious. It has been raining or wet for days - not complaining about the rain- but I am getting a little stir crazy and need to "get physical".
What a wonderful day you had.:-)
